Hi I'm Mitchell Clingo

I grew up in Las Vegas. I sang in several choirs. I have 3 siblings who I love. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I attended BYU as a physics major. I am currently serving a mission in the Illinois Chicago mission. I have made several friends throughout my life who are very important to me. I am always willing to be there for my friends and my family. I am the oldest of 4. My two younger brothers look forward to every time they get to talk to me. I enjoy solving puzzles, including rubik's cubes and other brain teasers. Being a physics major, I enjoy learning how the world around me works. I enjoy teaching others and helping others succeed. I find happiness in watching others succeed and feel accomplished, and I am always willing to support and encourage my friends through hard times.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this church is true. From a young age, I have made daily prayer to my Heavenly Father a consistent habit. I have shared my successes and failures with Him, and I know he loves me and cares for me. When I have troubles, I know he is watching me. I also have a testimony of the Savior. I know he bled and atoned for our sins. I know that through Him, we can return to live with our Heavenly Father, and we may receive everything that God has now. I know that we will all have the opportunity to be resurrected, just like Christ has. I also know that charity truly is the pure love of Christ, and the more loving and charitable I am, the more influence of Christ I can feel in my own life.

How I live my faith

I was the choir director and the ward music chair in my ward here at BYU. It was my responsibility to select and teach music to volunteers who sing in the ward choir. I also selected the hymns we sing in sacrament meeting, and organize special musical numbers so we can share our talents and feel the spirit in our sacrament meeting. I am now currently serving a mission in the Illinois Chicago mission. I love the work and the people.
